Man As Art
by Malcolm Kirk
Publisher's Description
"World renowned photographer Malcolm Kirk traveled to Papua New Guinea seven times from 1967 to 1980, taking hundreds of photographs. Of these, ninety-three were eventually chosen to create Man As Art, an internationally acclaimed volume of portraits of native tribesmen and women in ceremonial dress. Painted faces and bodies, elaborate wigs and hats, and ceremonial weapons and costumes are all stunningly revealed in this classic volume, now available for the first time in paperback. An essay by Andrew Strathern, one of the world's leading experts on New Guinean self-decoration, provides context for understanding these powerful and startling images."--the publisher.
